Charlestown burglary suspect released on bail


WAKEFIELD — A former New York man, charged by Charlestown and South Kingstown police with two break-ins and theft of an ATM machine and held since his arrest in December, was released on bail Tuesday after his appearance in Washington County Superior Court.

Louis Ortiz Correa, also known as Luis Rojas, 25, was charged by Charlestown with two felony counts of breaking and entering and a misdemeanor count of malicious damage to property. South Kingstown police charged him with breaking and entering the Seaview Marketplace on Matunuck Road and making off with two registers and an ATM. Police said they have surveillance photos showing Correa and another man in the market.

Charlestown police responded to a burglary alarm at Kingston Pizza on Old Post Road where they discovered the building had been broken into and the register opened. Charlestown Lt. Michael Paliotta said nothing was taken in the first of two break-ins. Police say Correa broke into the Hungry Haven Restaurant where $150 was stolen. According to police, the upstairs of the popular eating spot was ransacked.

Paliotta said Correa and an accomplice who escaped were involved in a truck crash after leaving the scene. The truck they were driving overturned on Moonstone Beach Road. Correa was discovered about two hours later hiding in the woods, police said.

Correa was released on $5,000 with surety, with a waiver of extradition allowing him to travel outside of Rhode Island. His next court date is scheduled for March 10.
